It's been around $4200-4300 on Amazon and the like for some weeks now. Apparently BB sold it to $3999 to a few lucky folks some time ago.

With CES here I wanted to start this thread to monitor price changes to this bad boy.

Sharp just announced the 2012 80 inch model and pricing... so the current one should start to see some reductions.

3D 240Hz
LC-60LE847U, $3,199; LC-70LE847U, $4,199; LC-80LE844U, $6,499
Available in April

If you can wait for the 90 inch Sharp tv's to be introduced in June or July of this year (per Chad B) then the prices should be even lower. It seems to me that there has been and usually is a premium price to pay when the set you want is the largest available. However if Chad's info is correct then the 80 will not be the biggest. good luck...

Yes, especially the 80 inch Sharp's. Note that the new lc-80le844u has 3d and a new 249hz panel. Yet it has about the same msrp as the current 80 inch sharp models. It seems to me that they have to drop the prices of the current set without these features. Note however, that this will probably occur after the new ones come out. (scheduled for April) However, since they will still be the largest sized sets (reasonably priced ones) there will still be a premium price charged. However, once the 90 inch ones are released (scheduled for July) they will then have the premium attached to them for being the largest sets available again allowing a reduction for the 80 inch Sharp's.

Bummed that there hasn't been more/faster price compression on these since the announcement of the 3D model. I still don't know what my buyitnow price is but I'd still be happy if the price fell further

Yup I'm talking sub 4k. Figured we'd hit 3500 not long after CES. I think cost is 3k so there's room here.

Ive been wanting this 80" but waiting for price drop $3500 or less. I am really tempted by the 70" 632 deal going on but still trying to hold out for this beast. That extra 10" makes a huge difference, at best buy this 80" towered over the 70" and made it look tiny.

I think I am going to pull the trigger on the 632 this weekend. Costco has it for 1848.... I will have it calibrated by Chad.

Thing is I cant see spending OVer 1000 more for 3d and Quatron and 240hz that isnt even used after all the calibrating. You can basically almost own another panel for the cost difference.

I like the fact that this display is only 2D,Not a 240 & Not a quatron...
Just waiting on the prices to drop

I have a 60" 88UN now The Last CFFL that Sharp made & its a Non-Quatron & I love it.
BUT 80" I Need That !!
Wifey says she don't want the 60" in the bedroom to replace the 46"
Soo might just add the 60" to my computer room & use as a monitor there

That really was a great deal. Re stock though, I wonder if they really are at the store, or if they are held (but allocated) at some kind of distribution center? If the latter, then location of store may not be the origin of shipment.

No, I did not buy it. I must say, I think it was a dented or messed up box that they sold which is why it was so cheap.

I sent a twitter to PaulsTV about when we might see a drop on the 80 inchers. Here is what was said.

If Paul's didn't charge California sales tax , I would have jumped on their price weeks ago when it was low ... But @10% of the sales price It's just enuff to keep me from Not buying ..

I really don't see the price drops on This display before the Super Bowl ,
Yeah on some displays they(B&M's) will see huge discounts but that will be on TV's that have been sitting on the shelf & not selling
but for this display, seeing how it IS the biggest TV that is in reach, price wise , to the everyday buyer . AND the fact that it's not in every store @ the moment the asking prices will be near the high side
I M H O ...
Just sitting & waiting
Darn I wish Amazon.Direct would get these in stock

what a conundrum !
